These are some interesting photos from the 19th New Delhi World Book Fair (Pragati Maidan). I was there from about 11:30 am to 4 pm on 4 February 2010. Please see the end of the post for links to many more photos of the Book fair and the Pragati Maidan. What I did not like was that this time there was no stationery fair ( I love stationery).
Stack of Books!
In the Book fair you will find many such eye-catching arrangements:
Beware of Book Pirates
:a pictorial message by a publisher on its stall
Amar Chitra Katha!
Tamil Pulp Fiction!
Pustak Mahal, a nice-looking stall
Mills and Boon! Romance is in the air!
Book Stalls from Pakistan
Iqbal Academy, Lahore
Empty Stall (Pakistan)
This Pak stall had put up an apology notice (visible in the photo) informing about the delay in his arrival
They read the books right there (it was some sketch work that they were doing).
Some German Show
This German stall had a fixed time for some show (audio; see the earphones) at about 2:30 pm
Chetan Bhagat in Hindi
